Elnora marks 20th Anniversary of Brahma Rama

Brahma Rama Bull

The Elnora Brahma Rama celebrated their 20th annual year of bull riding on Aug. 10 and 11. The first Elnora Brahma Rama was in 1999.

Justin Paton won Saturday’s bullriding with a score 85 points on Kool Aid of R Saga Ranch

Nick Tetz - 82 Points on Tangled of R Saga Ranch

Wyatt Gleeson - 79 points on Betty of Flying High Rodeo.

The stands were packed to watch the bull riding, only clearing for a little bit when the rain poured down and sent the crowd to find shelter. Thankfully, the rain did not discourage anyone, and as soon as it cleared up, the stands were packed again to watch the rest of the competition.

The Brahma Rama weekend also included wild pony races, a kids frisbee toss, mini bronc riding, wild cow milking, a dance, pancake breakfast, silent auction, and bath tub races.

There was also a slow pitch tournament playing all weekend on the three ball diamonds in Elnora, having 20 teams in total.

The event hosted a bucking bull futurity on Friday night in which we bucked 19 two year old bucking bull prospects with a weighted dummy (to simulate the weight of a rider) for five seconds.
